## Wolves v Warriors

It’s a battle of teams at opposite ends of the 3-point spectrum. Discuss.

## T-wolves vs. the other Gasol

You know, I’m getting pretty sick of watching this team lose. I really felt like that game against NY was one they should have won. I mean, how many dunks can one team miss?

I’m known for making bold predictions, so here’s one. THE WOLVES WILL WIN THIS GAME!!!

Wow. Just. Wow.

Lew Ford just homered again. You can’t make this stuff up.

## The Nation Has Problems: Vol. 10

1. Find the last three digits of $$2011^{2012}$$.

The first thing you might notice about this problem which can make it significantly easier is that $$2011\equiv 11 \pmod {1000}$$ so we can consider the simpler problem of finding the last three digits of $$11^{2012}$$. From here, I used the binomial theorem to [...]

## February 4, 2012: Folly Beach

Greek filling in here. I’m running my first half marathon today. Wish me luck!

## The Nation Has Problems: Vol. 7

Once I thought about the first problem for a while, it brought me to remember another problem that I had come across recently, so I added it.

[...]

## The Nation Has Problems: Vol. 6

So a few of you figured out the first problem last week, but it seemed that most of you got stuck on the second. Solutions after the break.

[...]

## The Nation Has Problems: Vol. 5

Both of these problems can be boiled down to well known combinatorial identities. However, if you’re not familiar with them, they can still be tricky problems. Before reading the solutions, you should make sure you are familiar with binomial coefficients. I will use the notation C(n,k) here. This is also the same [...]

## The Nation Has Problems, Vol. 4

So as I mentioned last time, both of these have relatively simple solution. For the first problem, calculating probabilities is a pretty futile exercise. You can try it for a small value of n and do it, but if n is–say–1,000,000, things will get out of hand in a hurry. The trick [...]

## Who’s up for a game of Werewolf?

Since the Twins’ season is basically over and today’s game is going nowhere fast, I propose we play a game of Werewolf. For those of you who have played Mafia before, it’s basically the same game.

If you’re interested in playing, send me an email. My email address is (mynamehere)@gmail.com. I’d like to get around [...]

## The Nation Has Problems, Vol.3

About Last Month (err…two months ago)

Again, I’ll start by talking about the last post. There is an observation for the first problem that makes it much easier that nobody seemed to pick up on. If you are to apply one of the moves twice, it’s the same as not doing it at all! It’s [...]

## The Nation Has Problems, Vol. 2

I’m not sure if I should post the solutions to last month’s problems in plain text or not. Since you have had a month to think about these problems, I will just go ahead and post the solutions in plain text, but I’ll do it after the break.

[...]

## The Nation Has Problems, Vol. 1

Hi everybody! I’m Dr. House! (no relation)

Normally, I will just right into my post, but since this is the first post in the series, I’ll start out talking about what this series is going to be about and what I want to do with it.

The main point will be for me to introduce [...]

## 2011 Game 22: Rays at Twins

Can haz eemrganci gaim log?

## Game 15: Twins at Rays

If someone has a real game log prepared, feel free to delete this. We obviously need something to celebrate our new digs though.

I predict the Twins will break out offensively in a big way today, winning with a football type score of 27-10.
